Dropsy syndrome

There is another syndrome you get when you're pregnant that I wasn't too aware of. It's called the dropsy syndrome. I suddenly have been cursed with butterfingers. No, not the yummy kind covered in chocolate (i want one now), but the kind where you're fingers don't stick to ANYTHING! I constantly drop things. Just yesterday I dropped my mascara wand, and what cute, dark spots now rest on my clothes and carpet! Just last week I dropped a bottle of cough syrup at work (not all my fault. Someone didn't put the lid on tight) and it spilled everywhere. It was all over me, the wall, the floor and the medication on the shelves. I spent forever cleaning it up. I drop pencils, spatulas, cooking spoons. You name it, I'll drop it! It gets really annoying, but the good news is it should suddenly leave me in about 5 months! Wahoo! I can't wait for that to be over.

Lots of good life changes!

I have the news that you've all been waiting for...................we're having a BOY! Everyone we talked to SWORE we were having a girl, but they were all wrong! We went to the ultrasound, and the little bugger just kept doing somersaults. Just as the guy would almost have the picture our baby boy just rolled around. We were trying to see the gender, and he just kept crossing his ankles and hiding his junk! Silly boy, modesty doesn't exist in the womb! We got some really good shots of him "flexing" his muscles for us, and he kept "boxing" when the ultrasound guy would hold still for just a minute. He was so cute! We love him already! Both of our mothers were in the room with us when we found out. Jeff and I just had perma grins on our faces the whole time. I heard a few (or should I say LOTS) of sniffles from the grandmas during the ultrasound. Jeff and I went in expecting it to be a boy, but hoping for a girl. We weren't too surprised. I think it finally sunk in last night, and we were super excited!

Our little contortionist!

Showing us his guns.

Isn't he CUTE?

That's not the ONLY good news we have! During this past week or two we've been in the process of buying our first home. It's a townhome/duplex just Northeast of the new high school. The process is exhausting, overwhealming, and a bit stressful, but we can't wait to get into our place. We got to pick the carpet, countertops, and appliances. Obviously it's not finished yet, but we're hoping to be in by the end of July. We are really going to miss our wonderful neighbors, and the ward we're in now, but we know this is what we're supposed to be doing and we know this is where we should be going. It's going to be hard, but I can hardly wait! I'll have a ton of space, a jetted tub, AND a dishwasher! Woo hoo! Within 6 months we'll be packing, moving, settling, and having a baby. What a whirlwind! I'll post some pictures of the inside when they get the carpet, countertops, and cupboards finished. Wish us luck!

Everyone, meet the newest member of the Adam's family!  His name is Toby and he's a ShiChi (Shitzu and Chiuaua mix). I'm not a big dog fan, but it is the cutest thing ever. It won't get very big. His mom is only 4 pounds and his dad is only 4.5 pounds. The loving adoptive mother is the great and fabulous Grandma Adams.  Grandma's last dog, Katie dies suddenly due to breast cancer.  

Toby is going to be a great new addition for Grandma.  Grandma Adam's is Jeff's grandma, but I've claimed her as my own. She's always treated me like one of her actual grandchildren. She deserves this cute little guy.  Aren't you jealous?!  The will be united forever next weekend at the family reunion.  

One week from today!!

Wahoo! We get to find out the gender of our little peanut in 7 days and 5 hours, but who's counting? ! Oh, wait! I am! We have found the most gorgeous crib , and we have 2 possible bedding sets, but we have to see what the gender will be. LOTS of people think it's a girl, but you never know. My Doc has guessed TWICE now that it's a girl, but apparently his track record isn't that great for guessing the gender by the heartbeat. At my last appointment he told me it was his final guess. Funny guy, at my next appointment, we'll have the results of the ultrasound. I just hope the next week flies by! I'll keep you posted.
